and then ensure that they obtain the arms they need to beat assads tanks and helicopters. >> five people who share our values, what does that mean? and then work to obtain that they have arms? what does that mean? >> well, to be honest, there's no real difference between that and the president's position as well. the question is, how over are you going to do this? and i gave a, you can defeat assad tank and helicopters by supplying arms to this group of rebels. that's not realistic. if you're going to talk about leadership and america's leadership in the world, you have to admit that syria's defenses are far superior to any of the countries that we've seen toppled so easily, such as libya, for instance. so you can't just assert leadership by saying, i'm going to be your leader. you have to say what you're going to do and how it's going to be different from the leader that you are criticizing. that's what we didn't see from syria or today in what he said about iran either because he talks tough on iran, not clear how anything, anything he's proposed would be anything different. >> and he does this,
normally, but they don't necessarily support assad. >> do they believe this is going to end, and it's going to end well, or do they believe that this killing will just continue for a long period of time? >> i think people right now believe that it's going to go on, that it's going to continue, that there's no immediate end in sight. they just kind of get on -- they're sort of in the middle class who are less well off and less affected by the battles themselves. they're just trying to get on with their lives, but i think they all know that this ultimately is going to come to just a worsening situation where there's more loss of life. i think what we've seen, for example, in alleppo today with those car bombs that makes it look like the battle is turning into as we saw in iraq, and certainly some of the groups that are getting involved in the fight with -- on the rebel side using tactics that have been borrowed from al qaeda and others. that's why we're beginning to see some of those tactics. >> there are 30,000 people, perhaps more who have been killed over the course of this uprising. talk
for syrian president bashar al assad. it had been posted on youtube six days ago. a warning, some viewers may find the following video upsetting. it shows austin theiss being led away. blindfolded and in broken arabic, he recites portions of a prayer, and then shows signs of distre distress. >> oh, jesus. >> reporter: the disturbing video was not released on any known extremist website. the state department can't verify whether the man in the video is austin theiss, but friends say the man featured is the 41-year-old former marine. some suggested that the video may be staged, pointing to the clothing that is native to afghanistan, not syria, and the forced recitation of a prayer. >> almost as if they watched tapings and video clips of men and fighters in afghanistan and tried to mimic their behavior, but did so in a very poor manor. >> reporter: before theiss vanished, he had been reporting on the escalating violence in syria. >> reporter: prepared for an anticipated government counterattack. >> reporter: he had worked for cbs and other news organizations. the state department says he is bein
partners like russia and iran, who are strong supporters of the assad regime in syria. >> we'll continue to watch it. ivan, thanks. >>> we will obviously continue to follow that. let's check in with isha and the "360" bulletin. >>> nearly month after the deadly attack at the u.s. consulate in benghazi, an fbi investigation team got to the site and spent only a number of hours in the city. for security reasons, they traveled with u.s. military support. four americans were killed in the september 11th attack, including ambassador chris stevens. >>> the outbreak of noncontagious fungal meningitis has grown to 36 cases in nine states. at least five people have died. every patient infected received a steroid injection to the spine, a common treatment for back pain. >>> the most successful college basketball coach of all time says in an affidavit she initially felt forced out at the university of tennessee by the athletic director. the legendary lady vols coach stepped down in april, eight months after being diagnosed with alzheimer's. so she testified in a lawsuit filed by another u.t. employ
trading partners like russia and iran, who are strong supporters of the assad regime in syria. >> we'll continue to watch it. ivan watson. ivan, thanks. >>> we will obviously continue to follow that. let's check in with isha and the "360" bulletin. >>> 18 children are dead after a landslide buried their elementary school in southwest china. the bodies were found in the village. the students wouldn't normally be at school today because of a national holiday, but they were making up classes after a series of earthquakes last month. >>> nearly a month after the >>> an fbi investigation team got to the site and spent only a number of hours in the city. for security reasons, they traveled with u.s. military support. four americans were killed in the september 11th attack, including ambassador chris stevens. >>> the outbreak of noncontagious fungal meningitis has grown to 35 cases in 6 states. that's 9 new cases in one day. at least five people have died. every patient infected received a steroid injection to the spine, a common treatment for back pain. each patient received an injection o
, and children have been massacred by the assad regime over the past 20 months. violent extremists are flowing into the fight. our ally turkey has been attacked. the conflict threatens stability in the region. america can take pride in the blows that our military and intelligence professionals have inflicted on al qaeda, pakistan, afghanistan, including the killing of osama bin laden. these are real achievements one at a high cost. al qaeda remains a strong force, however, in yemen and somalia, libya, other parts of north africa, iraq, and now in syria, and other extremists have been ground across the region. drones and modern instruments of war are important tools in our fight, but are no substitute for national security strategy for the middle east. the president is fond of saying that the tide of war is receding. i want to believe him as much as anyone else. but when we look at the middle east today, with iran closer than ever to nuclear weapons capability, with the conflict in syria threatening to destabilize the region, and with a violent extremists on the march, and with an american amba
. what if assad starts targeting turkey with aircraft? >> that changes everything, nic robertson. thank you so much for joining me. thank you so much for watching. i'm sure wolf will be all over this and of course debate night in denver. "the situation room" begins now. >>> brooke, thanks very much. happening now, we're counting down to tonight's presidential debate. mitt romney's motorcade just pulled up at the debate hall. president obama's expected to arrive in denver any minute as well. we'll be talking with top supporters of each candidate. the former new york city mayor rudy giuliani, he'll join us live this hour. also we'll be hearing from both candidates' wives in special cnn interviews. today, by the way, is the obama's 20th wedding anniversary. so what's it like spending the night with the romneys? i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." >>> 34 days from the presidential election but much more importantly right now at least right now we've reached what may be the most decisive night of the 2012 campaign, the first presidential debate at the university of denver. afte
in syria? we are all concerned about the problem, the loss of life, the killings. we know who assad is. the united states says he should go. who's the opposition? you tell me. >> which is the same question we were asking in libya before gadhafi fell. >> so we're dealing here with a messy region which is increasingly slipping into increased instability, a region in which american domination is rapidly, rapidly coming to an end. we have to face that fact. and a region which on top of it is faced with a potential war. we have a prime minister of a country that has 200 nuclear weapons decides to attack preemptively iran, which may be building nuclear weapons. and then we become engaged, and then, of course, the world economy goes pot. and then forget all of these debates about medicare. >> it's always so much fun to have you in here. >> it is. so we don't know who the opposition is in syria. we didn't know who the opposition was in libya. let's talk about who the leader is in egypt. we're trying to get our arms around morsi, and he waited a little bit longer than the white house would have
repression in a rule over its whole period of governance. it has shown it has shown once again as assad's father did, now there are foreign fighters there are so-called jihadis that are coming to the country from rareas areas in the midst of the turmoil but by and large, and i was there a couple of week ago, i met with rep seb tis of and they are all vowing that it is, it is prop gan gada from the syrian government to suggest these are all al qaeda fighters and not in fact completely demoralized and, and now turning to violent citizens of the syrian, the republic. margaret is in kansas on democrat's line. hi, margaret. >> caller: good morning. i have been watching this with extreme unbelievable upsetness. it gets so little coverage. we have some coverage until, you know, journalists are getting killed then i have to watch bbc. i mean, it is ridiculous what is on our news. so i wrote a short poem, i will read it to "crimes against humanity: sins of omission delay and humanitarian rescues, body counts, mine count, witness to extreme suffering, leadership needed, if not indeed, in words,
for the removal from power of president assad of syria, and again, without supplying them arms or helping the rebels and have clearly put ourselves on the cause of the rebels there. not to mention almost the entire leadership of al-qaeda is gone. they have been targeted and killed by the obama administration. osama bin laden no longer is a threat to the united states and neither is moammar gadhafi. and iran is nowhere closer to getting a nuclear weapon than they were before president obama took office. and america's prestige is up all over the world. the most popular person in europe today is barack obama. so people look differently and more kindly and more as a friend and partner to the united states than they ever did under george bush and dick cheney. i think this president has made a huge contribution in lifting the united states in the eyes of the world, and we are safer today than we ever were under george bush and dick cheney. 866-55-press, what do you say. >> announcer: radio meets telejigs. the "bill press show" now on current tv. of this democracy and see your
it is the pivotal moment and an opportunity to really get iran by getting assad. >> so, mike, we have heard this morning from politico that ann romney and tagg romney, great guy, by the way, starting to exert their influence and basically saying, hey, dad. move to the middle. we've seen you move to the middle on taxes saying, okay, i'm not going to cut taxes in a way that's going to raise the deficit. that's my rule. it's a hard, fast rule. he moved to the center on bipartisanship, on israel. i guess the question is, does that make him a more electable? i think it does. or does that make him the etch-a-sketch candidate? what's your read? >> well, i think that in addition to ann romney and his sons, i think there is an extended romney family within the campaign. people who have been with him throughout his career in politics. dating back to when he was governor of massachusetts. and i think they have been clambering for mitt romney to be more mitt romney than this right-wing creation we saw during the primaries, and i think they probably had a family conference at which point they thought, l
